Converter Prototype for 3DS Experience Platform Utilizing C# .NET, XHTML, CSS, JavaScript, jQuery, WebGL, X3D, X3DOM

Prototype for 3DS Experience platform utilizing xhtml, CSS, javascript, jQuery, WebGL, X3D for use with Dassault Systemes' SolidWorks and CATIA

Prototype for 3DS Experience platform utilizing xhtml, CSS, javascript, jQuery, WebGL, X3D for use with Dassault Systemes’ SolidWorks and CATIA

Objective of the converter prototype: An installed app or plugin to fill a specific client need to click a button to convert and open a 3D model from CATIA or SolidWorks format and interface into an x3d format and WebGL enabled browser as part of the 3DS Experience Platform. Using my unique UX skills with Adobe Creative Suite and .NET to give a look and feel similar to our native software products

CATIA and SolidWorks can export as VRML file, but since the customer need to open files via web and especially mobile devices increases daily and my unique skill set, Peter and I initiated this prototype research project. This project brought an exciting feature to the 3DS Experience platform. The objective was to prototype opening a 3D model via browser using technologies such as WebGL, x3d, CATIA & SolidWorks VRML file export feature as well as my unique design skills with Adobe Creative Suite to give a look and feel similar to our native software products. This converter is an app or plugin created in C# .NET to be installed into CATIA/SolidWorks that is triggered by pushing a button to take the VRML file from the exporter functionality, converts it to X3D, which is readable via WebGL in WebGL enabled browser and display an interactive 3D model in an environment quite similar to our native software look and feel. Once the browser has opened the file, the user can hit the play button on our 3DS compass at the top to play through the defined Viewpoints in the file, translate, rotate, zoom, walk, etc. as if in 3D software. I researched all the technologies in depth to find the best prototype work flow: C# .NET, WebGL, X3D, html 5, CSS 3, JavaScript, jQuery, etc. The teams involved were delighted at the application because the clean, engaging and useful user experience functionality, the speed in which the project was completed, and more importantly what this meant for the future apps possible for our 3DS user experience platform. If there is no link to the project you should download a WebGL enabled browser such as Chrome.

My Photography is Blossoming – Thanks to a Session with Nikos Vasilakis

I first fell in love with Nikos Vasilakis’s photography on DeviantArt. After messaging him I realized he is as sweet as he is talented. What an amazing artist and person! So amazing in fact, that on my next trip to Europe I was determined to take a detour to Athens for a lesson or at least to meet him and soak in some Nikos genius.

The photo that caught my eye in the beginning was with the lovely Christina Zafeiriou so I was very excited to work with both of them in my very own hotel room. What an opportunity, one that I highly recommend. He is available for portrait photography and photo retouching and for lessons of either at NikosAlpha.com

Here you can see the fruits of this collaboration : Christina Zafeiriou. I was the photographer and did all the post-production. Nikos showed me so much in this photo shoot, that I will be forever grateful. Thank you Nikos! See you soon at your workshop in LA very soon.
